Our experienced staff can help you not only with hemorrhoids but with a range of gastrointestinal issues such as bloating, colon cancer screenings, polyps, liver tumors, and more.
What Are Hemorrhoids?
A hemorrhoid can grow inside or outside the anus wall. They form when veins in the anus become swollen or inflamed. Patients will experience irritation, pain, or burning around the anus.
An internal hemorrhoid may normally be painless. However, it can itch if it turns into a prolapsed hemorrhoid after straining from bowel movements.
An external hemorrhoid forms under your anus's skin. Severe pain can occur if a blood clot forms there.
If you have noticed bright red blood on your stool or toilet paper, painful anal swelling, or a lump around your anus, you may have hemorrhoids. Please don’t be embarrassed if you experience this condition as you are not alone. Almost 75% of Americans have hemorrhoid flareups. If you have any of the above symptoms - especially bleeding, don't hesitate to call our doctors and schedule an appointment to treat hemorrhoids in Orlando, FL, Kissimmee, FL, Sanford, FL, Oviedo, FL, or Ocoee, FL.
How Can Our Office Help?
One of our experienced gastroenterologists will examine your anus and rectum. If your hemorrhoids are protruding outside the anus or are excessively bleeding, we can remove them at any of our offices. Our doctors may perform surgery, sclerotherapy, or band ligation to treat your problem.
How To Prevent or Treat Hemorrhoids?
Our doctors recommend a high-fiber diet that will help both the colon and the anus by softening the stool. You can also use natural fiber supplements such as phylum husk and others. Keep your anal area properly clean and be gentle when doing so. Soft wipes or soft toilet paper are ideal ways to avoid rough treatment of the anus.
Hemorrhoids don’t suddenly go away once they form. However, you can manage flare-ups with a good diet, exercise, and hygiene.
